of the united states, the budget, on its current trajectory, will bankrupt the country if we do not do something. >> what is the worst that could happen? >> what almost happened last summer when the 80th, the republican idiots, and decided we can have the country defaults on its debt and that would be fine. if you have ever been a banking reporter, which i have, if there is anything resembling a default on u.s. debt, it is a disaster worldwide. i thought we had learned something from that a year ago. apparently, we have not. the worst thing that happens is a u.s. default on its debt. it would be catastrophic. for no reason, idiotic. it is crazy. >> what is the result? >> every bank in the united states, every major bank, is bankrupt. suddenly, your capital is gone. a lot of capital is tied up in government securities. >> what happens if i go to the bank and what my money? >> it might or may not still be there. it is not like the banks would close. they would not be able to land. -- lend. it was like four years ago where you were facing massive bank failures. you still get your money but you woul
there will be changes in the united states senate, if tim is in, he will be in there for the same folks he's campaigning for all of these years when he was chair of the democratic national committee, ignoring the needs, dire needs of people in virginia. i want to see change in washington, those positive, constructive ideas that can get this country going in the right direction. i believe we ought to get united behind the mission of sending a message to the world that america is open for business again. i think that anybody who pays taxes should be on our side unless you want to pay higher taxes. if you use electricity, you ought on our side. if you want more affordable electricity. if you drive a car and don't like the fact you're paying over $30 more every time you fill up, you ought to be on our side. if you agree with me doctors and patients ought to be making health care decisions rather then panels of bureaucrats up in washington, you ought to be on our side. if you're working for a living or if you want a job, the approach i have been advocating has proven to work. over 300,000 net new jobs create
. thinking has been around for several hundred years. under the united states constitution the ability to create money as part of the united states prompted the united states constitution. forever 200 years a lot of that has been outsourced to the private-sector, today least 90% of our money supply so to speak is produced by the commercial banking industry. i am not even mentioning some of the other parts of the financial services industry. for the last nearly 100 years, the fed has been involved and not outsourcing. and the lender of last resort is there to support the banking industry. and for the last 75 plus years we have the fdic providing another part of the federal safety net, to make the banking industry the commercial banking industry much more robust. so to me this is all about the safety net. but it is also time to roll back the safety net, because when we think about the money supply, what we used to pay for things, that is where we have the safety net here. it also need to recognize the the united states dollar is holding be fed currency of the world. many of our transacti

that if the republicans take over control of the united states senate, they have made it clear that in order to pay for the tax cuts for the richest americans, they will make cuts elsewhere. what is the only proposal on the table? more than half a trillion dollars in cuts in education, basic infrastructure, and research. to have a good, federal partner in washington, we have to make funding education a priority. >> this question goes to elizabeth warren. can you tell us where you would look first and last? can you identify two federal programs that can be cut, and two he would work hard to protect? >> you are exactly right. we will have to take a balanced approach. i would be clear in terms of cutting the agricultural subsidy programs. it is time to cut in our military budget. we are winding out of one war. we can realign our priorities. on the other hand, i want to make clear i will not go to washington to cut medicare or social security benefits.

basis. pretty much every day, i will look at scotus blog, supreme court of the united states. or there is a blog called "how appealing." there are a variety of blogs, written by law professors. some are more conservative and some are more liberal. i will look at those every once in awhile and see what people are saying and thinking and writing about legal issues. i find them interesting and occasionally useful. you know. it is the world i come from, as you know. i am not going to say, i am never going to read the law review article again. >> do you read them before, as you are trying to sort through cases? >> usually only when the briefs point them out. i rarely do an independent search. >> you talked about the role of clerks in sorting through the cert petitions. in recent years, the court has taken many fewer cases than it did in an earlier area. -- earlier era. maybe there are fewer circuits and fewer important issues, but that seems unlikely. do you have a sense of whether the court is taking the right number? >> the truth is, i do not know if it is unlikely, for this rea

is that chart you showed, by the end of this decade, the united states will be the world's top exporter of oil and liquefied natural gas. >> you can use that to produce electricity which will make the cost of electricity more stable and cheaper in the united states, which could lead to a resurgence of certain industries. >> the natural gas right is very important because it lowers the cost of manufacturing. when you're thinking about manufacturing, when you're thinking about putting up a plant and employing a lot of workers in america, people think the big problem is the wages of the workers. no, the big problem is the cost of energy, and if energy costs dramatically dropped, we would be producing gas for about $2 per thousand cubic yard. in russia, they sell it for $19. we're much cheaper. as a result, dow chemical and places like that are beginning real manufacturing operations in the united states. there is also an environmental benefit. natural gas emits half the co2 emissions of coal. almost everywhere, natural gas is replacing coal. >> a fossil fuel like coal, like oil, president barack
arabian students in the united states. and i take pride in partnering with the cultural ministry for their tireless effort and the support of the students and their families. i would also give a special shout out to the mission here for their efforts in opening medical training and education here in the states, which have often been closed. by the way, education does not count in our trade numbers. but it is important. while i am reluctant to do math in public, if you multiply 60,000 by 100,000 a year stipend per year -- that represents an annual investment of about $6 billion into our education system. it is good for us, as well as the saudis. on our end, education and the education office works tirelessly to prepare students for their experience here. and to also educate potential students on the opportunity. as i've often said to the ambassador, i know of no area where two embassies were closer together. but the shared interest in education goes well beyond the students. saudi arabia is building new universities for men and women all over the kingdom. they have gone from eight

received the news from hillary clinton during a visit to the united states. >> reporter: to attend the u.n. general semibly. secretary of state hillary clinton told him that the obama administration would begin easing its ban on imports from myanmar. >> in recognition of the continued progress toward reform and in response to requests from both the government and the opposition, united states is taking the next step in normalizing our commercial relationship. >> reporter: he expressed his gratitude and said the people of myanmar would be happy that economic restrictions are being eased. clinton made a point of reminding him the division of aung san suu kyi. she visited the u.s. earlier this month for the first time since her release from the house arrest in november 2010. she and clinton together gave a lecture in washington calling for more investment in education and health care in myanmar. obama administration is expected to seek congressional approval to ease sanction while also monitoring the progress of myanmar's democratic reforms. myanmar is home to 60 million people and rich in
on the united states. there are a number of things we need to keep in mind with respect to that. you can trade -- it produced a conflict that was not inherent in the situation but be that as it may with respect to germany and england, we know that none of the leaders who started world war i would have done so had they known what the world would look like four years later. they let themselves be driven into conflict on the basis of considerations in terms of the tragedy they brought about. therefore, i think the conflict between china and the united states would be a disaster for both countries and it would be impossible to describe what a victory would look like. it requires both sides patients and understanding that they're trying to reach in each country. there are domestic pressures that emphasize the disagreements that arise. we see that in our political campaign in which both candidates are using language which is deplorable. you see it in the chinese literature from their strategic centers in which there analysts are pushing a nationalistic line. there is the prospect that it becomes a s
i cannot believe he was the president of united states with his body language, the meter and his inability to answer the questions. he cannot even look mitt romney in the eye when he is asked direct questions because he has no answer. the second issue i have that both of the candidates were pretty much missing is the fact that we are now dealing with women's issues right now. why is this even an issue? since nobody will overturn roe vs. wade -- reagan cannot even do that. who cares what they both believe personally? it will not change what will happen in the government appeared nobody will overturn roe vs. wade. so women don't have to worry about that. so don't vote based on those issues. i think there are a lot of things that need to be looked at. >> thank you for your call. on twitter -- next is the jones, virginia, lloyd, an independent. >> i would like to talk about .omney appeare he was talking about 12 coal miners in virginia. he also talked about jobs. is he going to bring cold that will he let it go? he is no candidate for the presidency because he turned his back on obam
to the power bases that were involved in virginia. so when you see is a record of the united states talking about access to power in a woman's ability to have access to power and create a supreme court precedent based on that, we can use that to leverage off more of what is going on. we need a bright, intelligent individuals who would rather work for those kinds of things that for hedge funds. or go to big law firms who are only going to help hedge funds in order to do it. we've really in the last 32 of 40 years in the united states have created great legal precedent. now we need to get somebody to start applying it.
